Faculty, staff and students collaborate with parents, the primary educators, to create an educational environment that fosters the development of the whole person. In the Dominican tradition, Immaculate Conception Academy encourages the growth of each student as a woman of faith, learning, community, leadership and vision.
Through an innovative work-study program, ICA partners with Bay Area businesses to provide a quality, affordable education to motivated and capable young women. ICA strives to prepare students to live meaningful Christian lives, well-equipped for college and future workplace challenges.
As an educational community of persons from diverse cultural, academic and religious backgrounds, Immaculate Conception Academy strives to empower motivated young women from families of limited means for success in college and life. Both within and beyond the classroom, we provide educational experiences that help develop each student’s unique qualities and self-worth.
We support the tenets and standards of the Cristo Rey Network, a national association of high schools that provide high-quality, Catholic college preparatory education to urban youth. This innovative school model engages each student in a corporate work study program that not only funds a significant portion of their cost of education, but also provides exposure to possibilities in the corporate world not otherwise readily available.
